Dear Family, Friends, and all Good people ofthe world.
I've created this campaign to raise emergency funds for a wonderful family that is in dire need. They are in Greece doing volunteer work at a Reugee Center as we speak with their 4 children. Because of the delicate nature of their work, for security reasons, they wish their full names and specific details pertaining to their locations to be concealed. They are going through a crisis right now. For reference, we'll simply call them the Trekker Family
The wife began experiencing headaches and mild weakness on Saturday last week. The symptoms progressed to the point that she needed to be hospitalized. After running an MRI, the findings came back that she has a lesion the size of a pea, deep in the right side of her brain. They were turned away from the hospital before treatments could be started because they do not have the cash to pay for medical treatment and the hospital is requiring upfront payments before anything is done. My cousin notified us of what was going on and we went into fervent prayer on their behalf.
Last night the symptoms worsened again, to the point that his wife has lost significant motor function and coordination in her right side. She is also experiencing extreme headaches and nausea that has crippled her appetite and ability to eat. Further tests have revealed that she may have a severe infection and that she has swelling in her brain. With that, they have begun a Cortisol drip to try to relieve the swelling enough so that she can fly home or buy enough time to get the funding for treatment. We have been able to send them some money but they currently owe over $7000 to the hospital for tests and the minimal care they have given her and the hospital is refusing further treatment until their outstanding balance is paid down.
We would like to see at least $10,000 to cover their current expenses as well as allow them some funding to pay for further treatments and for living expenses. 99% of the donations will go directly to the Trekker Family's medical bills for the wife's treatment with 1% being donated back to GiveSendGo for having such an amazing platform of giving available to support Christ's Body.
Who you are giving to:
The Trekker Family has been active on the mission field for many years now but made the decision a few years back to go into full-time ministry with their entire family. The Lord placed Greece on their hearts after they spent some time on a mission there with YWAM. Having departed from YWAM they felt the Lord guiding them to return and in November of this year (2019) they returned to Greece. They come from a family with a deep and rich history in Foreign Missions and have been to many countries throughout the world, bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to the nations. Pictured below is their family as they were about to board the plane to Greece for this most recent mission trip. We hope you will follow their story and become part of it as you feel led to be the hands of Christ in donating to help with the medical bills associated with the Trekker's Family Mother, and Wife.
